These crisp black bean vegetarian tacos are definitely worth a try. Yes, I said black. bean. taco. Not chicken taco, not fish taco, not even a ground beef or ground turkey taco. Black. bean. taco. I know what you’re thinking, because I was thinking it too. We aren’t big fans of coleslaw at our house and the no meat thing was really kind of putting me on edge but these crisp black bean tacos were surprisingly simple and absolutely delicious!

I know, you’re still asking “what about the meat??!!” Because really, what’s a taco without meat in it? Well, after making these I have to admit once again, I was wrong. Let me tell you, these were the absolute perfect solution for our hungry tummies. They are so easy to make and perfect for a 5 min dinner. Yes, that’s all it takes. Read it again if you need to but these little babies really do take only five minutes to prepare. What’s not to love about that?! This recipe is so simple but really packs a lot of flavor. (You definitely won’t feel like you’re eating cardboard in a tortilla like some other bean recipes I’ve seen).

You could even add some of your additional favorite taco toppings to make them even more delicious. These little babies are perfect for busy nights when you just don’t have time to cook or hot summer evenings when the last thing you want to do is spend hours preparing a meal and heating up your kitchen. Plus, you might have everything in your pantry and fridge already!
